Teacher Appreciation Day in San Angelo
Today is Teacher Appreciation Day! It's also a day that I can recognize my Mom for all her hard work as a teacher at Kermit Junior High for 33 years!
My mom taught 7th grade language arts at Kermit Junior High for just over 33 years. She left behind a legacy of being a strict teacher, but a teacher who inspired her students to do their best. There was a discussion about her on the Kermit Memories Facebook page a few months ago and all who posted were appreciative of her efforts. I know that my appreciation of reading, writing, and spelling was because of her efforts, and I will always be grateful that she was my mom.
I had the privilege of presenting our "Teacher of The Week" Award to Jill Kellermeier last week, and before the award ceremony started, a teacher stopped and told us that Mrs. Kellermeier was an outstanding teacher who not only did a great job teaching math, but also inspired all students with her school spirit and "can do" attitude. She was nominated by 3 students who all said Mrs. Kellermeier made Math "fun" (not a word usually associated with math), and were also inspired by her school spirit at many Ballinger High School events.
Thanks, teachers. Enjoy Teacher Appreciation Day and look for our Teacher of the Week Pictures under the "Events" tab on this site.
